Fast and furious whitewater rafting experience with fun guides and loads of water action. After completing a grade 3 rafting experience in Turangi, we were hungry for more action. Rotorua Rafting did not disappoint - the tour includes one of the highest commercially rafted waterfalls in the world. Get ready to get wet. Thumbs up to our guides who made... More

We had a great Time! Guide was very capable but still had a sense of humor. Very convenient set up. After we changed in to our wetsuits we walked across the road to launch.

Rafting run by a young enthusiastic team with great skill and an unobtrusive eye on safety that saw us leaping off rocks into the river, encouraging us to "swim" down one set of rapids and of course the longest commercially rafted drop in the world, all looked over by kayakers and boarders to keep us safe. A real highlight of... More

What a great rafting expedition. The guides are fantastic and filled the boat with confidence despite some quite scary (for the inexperienced) moments. A great thing to do and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

I have had some experience rafting before, but never a 21 foot waterfall. The river was warm and beautiful. The guides were a lot of fun. Great experience if I had time in my trip I would do it again.

Great fun with these guys and safe. We got a drenching - flipped a few times but it was a laugh and the waterfall was mega. The pictures are $40 extra at the end and we split the cost with the other family in the boat so it ended up being quite reasonable.
